One of the most virulent emotions to ever plague our bodies other than hate. Sadness is the gateway to hate. But only if you are not able to properly manage it. There is nothing in this world that can harm our bodies and minds like this. It swirls around inside your head causing terrible thoughts. Then it slowly spreads through out your body causing pain like no other. An internal wound that may never heal. Some people say that there are always two sides to every coin. Love and hate are prime examples. How can one truly understand another's pain without experiencing it themselves? How can you judge someone's actions without knowing all the details? We live in a world of profound sadness with an almost never-ending cycle of torment. The people of today are suffering because of other's needs for money and power. Greed is a terrible thing. Sadly, there is some degree of greed in all of us. No matter how small. But that's just life. The important thing is if people are able to control their desires. Stability is key in peace. Trust is also important. But that's not the subject at hand. The subject is sadness. I can't tell you how many times I've seen myself cry because I mentally put myself in a state where I think something dreadful happened to me. This may sound crazy but I only do this to try and prepare myself for what lies ahead. It might come sooner then I believe it to be. Honestly, I don't think any amount of preparation can help me get through the sadness that is coming. Some may call me emotional but I don't care. Some may think that I'm strange. I still don't care. I don't care for what most people think of me. I hardly care for people I hold dear think of me. You want to know why? It's because if I let anyone discourage me just cause I did something they don't like, then I would become an easy target of manipulation. I don't intend on being someone's puppet. Even if it means being alone forever.....I will not be controlled by anyone. I wont be swayed by anything. That's a promise.
